Middle School Moguls

Middle School Moguls Cartoon

Beginning life in 2014 as 'iBesties', the Middle School Moguls brand was created by Gina and Jenae Heitkamp to help girls consider careers in business and leadership, particularly in the tech industries. A successful Kickstarter campaign resulted in a line of four 11 inch dolls launching in 2016. They have rooted hair and are jointed at elbow, knee and ankle - you can see a picture of a nude doll HERE.

Last year Nickelodeon commissioned a short animated series featuring the characters, so hopefully we'll be hearing more from the brand soon!

Clueless Dolls

Mattel Clueless Dolls 1996

I never knew these existed before today but, omg, back in 1996 Mattel released a tie-in line of Clueless fashion dolls. It had three dolls, four fashion packs, and even the iconic white jeep!

This Week - 16/06/2019

Happy Fathers Day!

It's Fathers' Day. :) Marianna's been swimming with Rhys and Hannah today, then we went to give my dad his present. Anthony had his early because we blogged about it for our Fathers Day Gift Guide - it would have been kind of difficult to keep it quiet after that!

This week has been mostly focused on work stuff. There was the LCF (local campaign forum) AGM on Monday, along with Labour group, and I had a licensing committee meeting Thursday and a scrutiny meeting of the Torfaen public service board on Wednesday. (The links go to the council webcasts.)

Marianna's been practising for her sports day all week, then they had a teacher training day on Friday so she has been demonstrating her running everywhere. So much so she now wants to be 'Flash Marianna'. Or, so she said on Tuesday, Darth Vader's girlfriend: the very originally titled 'Darth Girl'. I'm not quite sure what the obsession with Darth Vader says, but it's probably not the best sign...

On the blog this week I've written about Kuu Kuu Harajuku dolls, my Top Ten Obi-Wan Kenobi Memes, and created a masterlist for the 30 Day Blog Challenges I've completed. I also put together a mega list of 200 places you can get free fabric samples (inc. free delivery). They're great for helping with decorating decisions, but are also perfect for crafts, especially in miniature. I think I've picked up enough to upholster five doll houses now...

Top Ten Obi-Wan Kenobi Memes

Hot Girl Star Wars Meme

When you realise that if Obi-Wan's confusion was actually visible you wouldn't need the subtitles to tell you so

My response when somebody shows me a picture of their kids - Your clones are very impressive. You must be very proud.

You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the Obi-Wan

I have the high ground

High Ground AMA

Tasked with protecting baby from dangerous Sith Lord father - doesn't even bother to change the baby's name

When you watch Star Wars and come across a scene that isn't a meme

When you're teaching algebra at 3 but fighting Vader at 4

You can't describe the prequel trilogy with just one quote - calm down Anakin

And under a cut for bad language...
